FRANKFORT, Ky. (WHAS11) – Beginning Thursday, the use of all tobacco products and e-cigarettes on executive branch state property will be banned.
Governor Steve Beshear announced the tobacco free policy in September because of the state's high rankings in smoking and cancer deaths.
One of the primary goals of Beshear's KYHealthNow initiative is to reduce Kentucky's smoking rates by 10 percent by 2019.
The state's tobacco-free policy will affect 33,000 state workers as well as hundreds of thousands of visitors to state offices and properties.
